Flowers, Critters

Anne-Shirley Clough

a name quite enough

dandelion fluff

spread by a puff

from the cheeks of a girl

in the meadow at Vita


A fella


seen her scamper

between the bushes

and Antynovitch Road

on the way to town

Flowers she picked

from the open field

red and bright yellow

a colourful yield


Critters she caught

they were pets to love

brought in the barn

with a kiss and a shove


Summer showers

soft the sound

on the road to town

while way out west

The sun goes down

Nature’s meadow

where flowers grow

and critters run

where dew wets your ankles

in morning sun

Anne-Shirley Clough

That name’s quite enough
